Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I first learned of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie from her essay, "We Should All Be Feminists".
This novel is poignant, and tells of the story between a Nigerian couple who eventually leave Nigeria to pursue life in the U.S. and the UK, respectively.
Recommended for those who:
Like themes of class and race
Enjoy stories that take you on a literal and figurative journey
Read books with a strong female protagonist
